SO SO SO SO was hoping it was Allen -but he is obviously running a smart race for the long haul

It looks like Allen is lucky to have Ray there. His other 2 handlers look like they need handlers of their own ;) Hopefully everyone can catch up on sleep in Dawson.

Isn't that Aliy dozing on the ground? Dang - a musher will sleep anywhere!

Allen is thinking of the long haul and doing more. Allen (and all of the SPK team) never forgets that it is his duty to keep these animals, who depend upon him completely and serve him so selflessly, alive and well.

Gold is nice and all that, but the bigger goal is 500 miles down the trail. I admire that he is sticking to his plan. Rabbit hunting can wait until after the 36 hr layover.

So who is going to turn the tables and snap a candid picture of Moira sleeping?

Thanks for keeping us posted!

I know Aliy has said that she gives up coffee a month before Iditarod. Is this the immediate effect? :)
